Bierkrug (2129) - - FEB 3, 2014
330 ml bottle in Pompano Beach, FL. Pours a chestnut brown with a huge tan foamy head. Aroma is malt cookie dough, candy and fruit. Taste is a tart version of the aroma and the palate ends dry and lasting. Ok.

TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2013
(Bottle). Aroma is a mild and sweet malt. Hazy copper complexion with long-lasting thick white head. Nice semi-sweet malt flavor that is easy to session. This could be a fine English pub ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong cinnamon flavor in this ale. I wish there was a little more going on, but it’s pretty one note.

Hansen (8595) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2013
Brown coloured, faint hazy. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Sweet aroma, caramel and clear candy, funny impression. Flavor starts sweet, faint coffee. Creamy, dry texture.

3.3
Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle. $0.99 crap bin at the local beer store. Why the hell not. Pours deep amber with thin off white head. Smell is big caramel, dark fruits, cherries, rich malt. Taste is similar with a cherry that rides out, even a slight tartness to the finish. Pretty sure this is about 9 months old, but it is drinking pretty nice right now. And what the fuck its only a buck.

3.1
craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Poured a clear, dark amber with a thin light tan head. Aroma is caramel, nuts, raisin, with a bit of earthiness. Taste is coffee, caramel, herbs, with a strong bittersweet finish.
